Dollar Tree ornaments, vintage ones, and those with special meaning comprise the calendar. Below are explanations for five.
pewter one purchased soon after daughter Lauren Ashley was born
tiny vintage one found at an antique mall
paper rose made by friend Mary
angel wings from a figurine of my mother's
little silver bells from a strand that belonged to Geneva Clowes, a special aunt
Before there were Pinterest boards I had saved the clipping below. It is a lovely advent calendar that made me want one. It is still my favorite!
